To become a member of SCI, visit here. Composers may submit one composition for consideration. This work may be for any instrumentation, for any number of performers, in any style, and in any media including electroacoustic. Composers whose works have been included in the previous five volumes of the Journal are ineligible to apply.
All submitted scores and recordings must be anonymous. Any element that may reveal the composer must be removed. This includes composer’s name from all pages (front matter and copyright included), dedications, catalogue information, and file names.Scores should be no more than 25 pages long and must be legible when reduced to 8.5×11 dimensions (portrait or landscape acceptable). All score submissions must be uploaded a single, anonymous .pdf document containing the entirety of the score and all front matter. Multi-movement works must include all movements in a single .pdf file. Submitting a recording is optional but preferred. Multi-movement works must include all movements in a single audio file. For submissions, accepted audio formats include .aif, .wav. and .mp3. A panel of professional composers will judge each anonymous entry independently. Scores will be adjudicated for both their musical content and for the quality and clarity of their engraving. The resulting scores will be tabulated with the highest scoring works selected for inclusion. Submitting composers will be notified of the panel’s decision by the end of the summer. Any questions can be directed to Chin-ting Chan.
